If you are travelling with children, lively Piccadilly Circus contains the Trocadero amusement arcade and Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, where you can see some of the most bizarre sights from around the globe. If you want to experience the grander side of London, a pleasant stroll down the mall past St James Park brings you to Queen Elizabeth II's London residence, which you can tour for a few months a year, or if you miss these dates, you can watch the fascinating, centuries old Changing of the Guard Ceremony.
